Manhattan Project: Energy Empire

This episode has our hosts joined by Special Guest David, owner of Time Well Spent Games. After a brief intro of his gaming history, the weekly game recap begins. David mentions his most recent plays of Adrenaline, Jeff and Zach both bring up Food Chain Magnate and Mint Works!, and Adrian brings up the rear with his plays of Vinhos Deluxe and Lisboa. Jeff gives us a colorful rundown of his latest Blood Bowl game in the Blood Minute, and then they dive into News and Kickstarter. A bunch of games were announced, including Terra Mystica: Gaia Project, aka Terra Mystica IN SPACE, a two player version of Caverna, and the fiascos of Gloomhaven and First Martian Preorders are brought to light. In the Kickstarter section, Heroes of Land, Air, and Sea is taken down to prepare for a future relaunch, and some new tracks for Tramway are up. In the Review of the week, our hosts and David talk about Manhattan Project: Energy Empire. Has this standalone game built enough of an infrastructure to distinguish itself from the Original Manhattan Project, or does it get blasted away? Find out inside! A reminder of our Contest for Imperial Settlers closes out the show.
